Provide a brief description of the purpose and goals of this project.

I previously submitted a draft of this survey for committee review. This is an update of the 2016 New Student Orientation survey delivered every other year (even years) to new first-year and transfer students at Cornell in late August/early September. Orientation has changed considerably since 2016 and the survey reflects these changes.

The goal is to learn about the new student experience including pre-arrival communications, Orientation events, schedules, required programs, and mentoring (via Orientation volunteers).

I'm finalizing the survey with ISR now and will include the complete survey once I hear back from them.

Describe the population of interest (e.g. first year students, graduate students), sample size, and your method for selecting the sample.

New first-year and transfer students; survey is delivered to all.
